MTU Aero Engines and Pratt & Whitney have signed an agreement to grow the company’s MRO capabilities for all Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines in service today. MTU is now positioned to supply overhaul services for two additional engine models: the PW1500G for the Airbus A220 family and the PW1900G for Embraer E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft. The contract further expands MTU’s role in the GTF MRO network beyond PW1100G-JM for the Airbus A320neo family. In the future, EME Aero, a maintenance joint venture between MTU and Lufthansa Technik that is based in Rzeszów, Poland, will perform shop visits for PW1900G in addition to PW1500G engines.
Beyond that, MTU is also a part of the Pratt & Whitney network for repair services. The contract is set to run over the lifespan of the engine programme.Email Post to a Friend
